Abstract: Building vibrant and sustainable Food Supply Chains (FSC) is absolutely necessary to achieve food and nutrition security. The FSC comprises a set of interdependent actors who work together to manage the processes and flow of goods and services along the valueadded chains of food commodities, with the intention of meeting customer needs at the lowest possible cost (Folkerts and Koehorst, 1998). The main operations within the FSC are production, processing, distribution, consumption and disposal (FAO, 2007). The FSC also encompasses product development, marketing, finance and customer service. Since every step of the FSC requires the involvement of human and natural resources, it has the potential to create jobs, provide income, and subsequently improve the livelihood of stakeholders.
